About our school
Holy Trinity C of E Primary School an average size Primary School with 210 children. We opened a nursery provision for the first time in September 2014. We are over-subscribed and have waiting lists for many year groups. We have below national average FSM, ethnic minority, EAL, SEN, LAC, deprivation and mobility. Our curriculum is firmly based in Basic Skills which is complemented by a themed approach to deliver foundation subjects. Our subject co-ordinators have worked hard to plan and implement Curriculum 2014, alongside a new assessment structure to deliver assessment without levels. We use a number of ‘experts’ to deliver aspects of the curriculum such as PE, Music and MFL, alongside a wide variety of ‘WOW’ experiences within and beyond school to inspire and enhance learning.
We have a distinctive Christian character which reverberates through every aspect of school life and underpins the ethos of our school community. Our highly skilled, collegiate staff, support pupils socially and pastorally as well as academically, through Mentoring, Nurture Groups, Sand Play Therapy, Parent Support Advisors and basic Christian values for life. We celebrate our Christian faith and values and enjoy a very strong partnership with Holy Trinity Church which is adjacent to the school.

We work closely with NETS (North East Teaching Schools) and NETSP (North East Teaching Schools Partnership) which holds a license to deliver NPQH and other leadership qualifications and are an appropriate body for NQTs.
